Finzi-Contini's garden review.

Image result for Finzi contini's garden bookIt's been a while since I've uploaded a book review but here has come the day, I've finally finisched tests so I will have a lot more time to read, so expect some reviews soon. 

You've heard of this book in a recent tag that I've uploaded, this was the last book that I had to read because someone had me to read it.
This was given to me by my literature teacher for school and I didn't like it.
This book talks about the story of this people that are Jews and it's set up in 1939 so when the racial laws were up in the city of Ferrara in Italy.
The only reason why I didn't like this book was the fact that I was expecting something more exiting, something that would have stayed in my mind and in my heard for ever, something that I would have always remembered as a really good book, the problem was that there was no point in writing this. 
This is not teaching anything because it tells the story about the main character Giorgio falling in love with Micol, she liked him at the beginning but then she fell in love with his friend Malnate, this is it.
This talks about their story, he liked her, he tried to have her fall in love but then this is it.
There are some historical references about the ''Leggi Fascistissime'' of 1925-26 and it talks about the fact that life of a Jews was hard because they couldn't attend the tennis club and in university they had some issues. 
But it was not telling me anything else.
If you want to read something about that historical period I suggest that you read Anne Frank's diary or Primo Levi ''If this is a man'', I don't suggest this one at all, it's boring and it didn't tell me anything.
I was so let down at this.

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…

As you may know I am all in helping authors to grow their platforms, in fact, as a lot of you know I am hosting some king of monthly giveaway in witch I help you promoting your book by reviewing it on this blog and suggesting it to some of my friends and to people that I think may love it, and if the book is so good it will have a permanent spot under my posts and a direct link to the purchase. 
Today I am offering an opportunity to all authors that haven't published their work yet and need some help in creating the cover. 
I have created my own cover for my first book, The last beat, because after I had payed a graphic designer he just got the money and never delivered the work, after I have told him that he was going to get sued he gave me my money back, so I am having a kind of hard time in trusting people on the internet again. 
This is why I am offering to you the possibility to have a free cover designed by me because after I got dropped by m…
